Oxford Dictionary Update: New Words To Add

New Dictionary Words

It’s that time again! Time to get the “official” new words that will soon be accepted as legitimate words. New words like “micropig”. Micropig is just one of the new words/terms  that became official as part of ODO’s most recent quarterly update of new words and definitions, which includes “soul patch,” “hosepipe ban” and “vajazzle.” The new Oxford Online Dictionary now recognizes words like “hot yoga,” “brah,” “group yoga,” “tweeps” and “lifecasting” are just a few of the new words.

Here are some of the new words with their definitions:

douche (noun): an obnoxious or contemptible person, typically a man
hackathon (noun): an event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming
lolz (plural noun): fun, laughter or amusement
micropig (noun): a pig of a very small, docile, hairless variety, sometimes kept as a pet
mwhahaha (also “muahahaha,” “muwahahaha,” “buahahaha”): used to represent laughter, especially manic or cackling laughter such as that uttered by a villainous character in a cartoon or comic strip
photobomb (verb): spoil a photograph of (a person or thing) by suddenly appearing in the camera’s field of view as the picture is taken, typically as a prank or practical joke
vajazzle (verb; “vagazzling” is the noun): adorn the pubic area of (a woman) with crystals, glitter or other decoration

These words will be added to the official dictionary in just three months, so study up!
